I don't like the sorting-by-repo-name as much b/c it feels too
arbitrary. If we have two or more equally good sources for a package it
seems like it would make more sense to sort based on type of repo ie:if
the repo is a file:// repo then use that one first.

The other option is to indicate a concept of distance so one repo can be
tagged as 'nearer' or 'farther'

But, again, that is only if two repos really provide identical pkgs.
